I like that quote!

Have you harvested your
Stevia yet? How about
Elderberries?

I am debating about picking
the Elderberries around here.

I was going to use some black
berries down the street but not
far in one of the other batches
from it it look as if they had
sprayed them. They are not far
from the Elderberries. I do not
know if that will effect them or
not.

They didn't spray the blackberries
that were by the water filter system. Just a little bit down the road. Can not remember how far you
have to pick from a sprayed area.

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Hi Flassie ~ I have harvested some of my stevia , but I haven't been satisfied with the results. I tried to extract the sweetness in a water infusion , but it wasn't very sweet. I haven't tried the crushed leaves yet.

We're going through a drought and when I checked on the elderberries , they had dried up or the birds got to them first , so I won't be harvesting elderberries this year (sigh). I was looking forward to having elderberry syrup on hand for the flu season , guess I'll rely on garlic , lemon and honey to get me through the season.
I'm not sure about harvesting in areas that have been sprayed or how far away it would be safe to harvest , maybe you can google and find out.

I posted a blog entry
on July 16th 2009 of
a website about Stevia,
if you'd like to check
it out. Title is Sweeter
than Sugar. I think it is
on second page at the
moment.

Computer isn't fixed yet.
Have some problems with
the internet on laptop.

God Bless You and Yours!!!

Hi Flassie ~ I read your post about the stevia. My stevia died due to the drought , I was so busy with tomatoes , I neglected to water it. I do have some stevia dried , but need to crush it.

Hope you get your computer fixed soon.
